STEP 2:
COMPLETE STEPS ‘A’ AND ‘B’ TO COMPLETE THE REGISTRATION PROCESS

AND

B. The Health History form is required for all seasons. The state modified this form in 2020 to include COVID-19 screening information. As a  result, it is required from all student-athletes regardless of the physical exam date on file.

*** The following is also needed, in order to be eligible for a sport. ***
(This may or may not apply to your athlete):

1. Impact baseline tests must be submitted by every incoming freshman and transfer students. The baseline test is valid for two years. The majority of students will complete a baseline test in their 9th and 11th grade years. Impact baseline test will not be accepted from other school's databases. This includes baseline tests done at the Florence M Guadineer middle school.

3. COVID-19 SCREENING:  All individuals involved in athletics will be screened at least once daily for the presence of Covid-19 symptoms and history of exposure. Athletic screenings will involve completion of a health questionnaire through a digitized “NJSIAA Daily screening form.

  • The athletics screening form will be available daily from 8am to 1pm and can be completed on any device that is connected to the internet. A 1pm deadline is in place to allow the ATC to review submissions and notify coaching staff of compliance before temperature checks begin. 
  • Printed copies of the questionnaire or late submissions will not be accepted. 

Any student having technical issues must email Mr. Jacobs at ljacobs@springfieldschools.com and Mr. Spangler at ispangler@springfieldschools.com or leave a voicemail at 973-376-1025 x5232 prior to 1pm in order to be granted an exception.

The NJSIAA Daily screening form. can also be found under the district’s Family ID landing page.

Families are encouraged to bookmark this link and/or create a recurring calendar event to remind themselves to complete the form.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
 

  • How can I find out if my current physical is on file?
  • Why can’t I practice if I submit my physical on the first day of sports?
    • All submitted physicals are sent to the school physician for review as per district policy. This process typically takes 1-3 days from the day that the district receives a new physical. To avoid disappointment all students are encouraged to submit physicals at least 5 days prior to the start of a sports season. 
    • The school physician is based out of the Care Station Medical practice located at 90 US-22, Springfield, NJ 07081. Physicals completed at this location do not need to be reviewed and will be processed immediately upon submission to the school. 
       
  • Why am I getting an email from Family ID asking for a “signature correction?”
    • There are sections of the Family ID registration that require separate “student” and “parent” signatures. If a parent signs their name as the student or vice versa, the registration will not be accepted.
    • Please be mindful of signature fields when registering. Follow the notification email instructions to correct an invalid signature admission. There is no need to start a whole new sports registration.
       
  • I submitted my NJSIAA Daily Covid-19 Screening form but didn’t get my confirmation email.
    Can I practice still?
    • All participants will receive a confirmation email from “Google Forms” when completing the NJSIAA Covid-19 screening form. If you did not receive a confirmation email the form was not completed fully. If you feel this is in error please complete the form an additional time until you receive a confirmation email.
    • The form can be filled out by either the parent or student-athlete but it must be done between 8am and 1pm. This allows for time to process the hundreds of registrations received daily and notify coaches and staff of absences and symptomatic individuals.
       
  • I emailed my paperwork to Nurse Graham / Mr. Spangler, why am I not cleared yet?
    • In light of school closure and the pandemic digital submissions of paperwork have been accepted on a temporary basis. Families are strongly encouraged to submit paperwork in hard copy. There is a secure yellow and black drop-off box by the main entrance of the building for the submission of hard copy forms. Given the volume of forms that must be processed, the demands of printing out digital submissions will delay the athletic clearance process.
       

If there is no possibility of submitting hard copy forms, families must email well-lit and clearly legible images of their forms. Said forms should be submitted as one attachment. A single athlete submitting an email with 3-5 individual attachments or sending multiple emails of digital forms increase the processing time and delay athletic clearance.
